The Scarf

I made the scarf again (or “The Scarf”, as I think of it now), this time in tomato with a slate gray edge.


I would never have thought to order the tomato if it hadn’t been for Kathryn. (But I think we’d pronounce it differently, ya?) It’s pretty close to the brick red, but it’s got a nice juicy sharpness to it.

And guess what, the lovely lady in Wichita made one as well. Tamara chose blue and grey, and I think it looks stunning (and not least because she’s a damn fine crocheter!!!) She’s going to send some feedback on the pattern soon, and I know with her help the scarf kit is going to be a winner. Without her help, I think the pattern may as well have been written in Croatian for all the use it would have been to anyone. Except a Croatian, of course.

        the kind of thing you’re doing with the poncho is my real true love – mixing different yarns and textures together so you get a bit of a surprise at the end!

      you did? why? you look so serene and happy, like “At last I can put this bloody scarf behind me”, or “John will be so thrilled with the extra jalapenos I put in the chili for supper….”

    We currently have lots of tomatoes in our garden…
    I think the tomato scarf would be just the thing to wear as summer fades here in the UK as I collect them each morning!

    I like both colours but the tomato is pure juiciness! Works great for winter! Great pattern too. Cheers from the Jacaranda City (at the moment)
